Jack Owens joins Sheffield Eagles on loan for rest of the season

St Helens back Jack Owens has joined Sheffield Eagles on loan for the rest of the season.

The utility has played 33 games for the club since signing from Widnes in 2016 and made 28 appearances that season, including appearing against Sydney Roosters in the 2016 World Club Series.

This season he has played five times, scoring two tries.

“Jack has been a true professional this season,” Saints CEO Mike Rush said. “Despite not having a great deal of first team game time his attitude has been first class and he has worked hard.

“He has set a fine example to the younger players this season, particularly in his performances for our reserves, and the move allows him to gain more game time.

“We wish Jack all the best at the Eagles and in his future career.”
